Not a problem, JD. I had actually looked that up before the show in order to double check. Phone names are so hard to keep track of now that there are several a month coming out!

Thanks for having me on the show! It was a blast!

Not sure where my brain went on the "Droid" branded phones. There were actually several Droid branded devices by other manufacturers. I guess it was just that the Motorola ones are the most recognizable. Sorry for the flub. :)
